Stella McCartney, fashion week

Stella McCartney’s spring 2013 collection managed to combine drama and understatement with shapes (exaggerated shoulders, sheer panels, and extreme drop-waists) as statement-making as the colors (tangerine, cobalt, and kelly green). A master of bridging masculine with feminine, McCartney gave her cool-girl suiting extra impact by contrasting slouchy slacks against nipped-waist jackets, while her peek-a-boo sheaths are sure be favorites on red carpets. The finishing touch: sleek accessories, including coordinated Lucite sandals and bags ranging from geometric minaudieres to boxy totes. Check out our favorite looks in the gallery!
